Return of the Student’s Life

I am finally off to bed seeing that it is 3 am. I can’t remember the last time that I was up studying for a final until 3 am, but that is the life of a student. And that life is back…with a vengeance. A final tomorrow. A quiz on a book due the next day. A paper due next Monday. More reading for Thursday. Thank goodness I don’t have classes on Wednesdays!
Despite the bitterness that this is portraying, I love being a student again. My brain is being exercised again, and I feel like I am actually pursuing God’s call in my life. It is terribly exciting.
I also have a new friend that I am terribly excited about as well. I purchased my first leather-bound Bible (thank you Justin, Jesica, Ashly, Josiah, Cara, and Matthias for your Christmas gift!). It’s a brand-spanking new TNIV Study Bible that I am really loving right now. I know there is some controversy out there about gender inclusiveness (for and against), but since it is so late (now it’s 3:10 am), I will reserve that debate for a post when I am a little more coherent. I just have to say that Dr. Bruce Waltke, my professor for my class in January on Judges through Poets (also on the Committee for Biblical Translation and worked extensively on the NIV), highly recommended it. Based on his explanations and his knowledge of original languages, he convinced me to check it out.
Anyways, time to join my wife in bed for a little 3 hour nap before I’m up and at it again! If anyone reads this on on Monday, February 12, say a little prayer for me and my final!
